Microsoft has released a new update to its To Do application, which was interpreted as a step towards ending the Wunderlist, which it acquired years ago and is still very popular.
The US software giant acquired Wunderlist in 2015 with the aim of leveraging the application team’s expertise to create a new application to create menus that integrate with their applications and other services. Indeed, Microsoft has launched To Do.
Reber promised, if he could buy the app, to make it open source and free. In another tweet, he even posted a list of things he wanted to add to the app, including features: shared folders, team collaboration, and more.
On Monday, Microsoft released an update to To Do that improves the look of the app, with a number of backgrounds, including the background of the TV Tower in Berlin, a popular theme in WunderList.
The app also includes smart menus, a personalized daily planner, provides smart suggestions for tasks the user needs to accomplish, and supports work on various platforms, including iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac.
The application integrates the new version with other Microsoft applications, such as: Outlook, Microsoft (Planner) Planner, digital assistant (Cortana), and application (Microsoft Launcher) on Android. It also supports working with other assistant, such as Alexa from Amazon.
It is believed that through the new update, Microsoft aims to encourage users to move from Wunderlist to To Do. The new update to To Do can be downloaded from its website.
